Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Douglas transmitter area
Have tried everything you suggested. Problem much worse - pixellated recep/drop out on all channels. Aerial man checked conns but reckons that Ulster going fully digital in Sept 2014 has interfered with signal, esp chann 23 28. Also 4G mast outside may be causing probs. Next door on left - no probs. Next door on right retunes every other day! Giving up now! Can't cope with not being able to watch QI and have read 20 books since 1 Jan! Thanks for help.
